Many people think this is a battle of strength.  But champions in this sport know it's more about having good technique.  A technique that will allow the winner of the event to pin the loser's arm on the surface, with the winner's arm over the loser's arm. It's called arm wrestling, and it will make a return to the South Dakota State Fair in Huron, South Dakota.

The South Dakota State Fair Arm Wrestling Competition is Saturday, August 30th at the Midway Roadhouse, the State Fair's newest entertainment venue.  Registration is from noon to 12:45pm, with the arm wrestling competition to begin at 1:00pm.

A weigh-in will take place before the competition that will have three weight divisions: 0 to 175 pounds, 176 to 200 pounds and a 201 pounds and up division.  There will also be an Open Class Left-Handed division.

There is a $15 entry fee, and all arm wrestlers must complete the registration form.
